and suffering as they wait. former new york city mayor rudy guiliani joins us. good evening, mayor. >> how will this unravel? >> if you take them at their word, it sounds like the president is anxious to go over the fiscal cliff, and he leaves very little room for republicans to negotiate with him with a 1.7 trillion dollar tax increase, 50 billion more in stimulus spending, and absolutely no expenditure reductions that are going to take place right now. i mean, from the point of view of republicans, you're going to get more spending decreases if you go over the fiscal cliff than if you deal with president obama. >> greta: well, it appears to many in the city that it's politico check mate for the president. if we go over the fiscal cliff, what it means is the taxes will go up on the wealthy, the big earners. it also goes up on the middle class. i assume the middle class will look to the rawp republicans foe fact that their taxes come up so political check mate. >> i'm not so sure. president obama could avoid that very simply by putting maybe two or three to one expenditure reductions on th

, no medicine, a bombed out hospital, and a lot of very, very desperate civilians in syria's largest city. it was after filing that devastating report that richard engel and his team were captured. >> we were driving in syria, about five days ago in what we thought was a rebel-controlled area. we were with some of the rebels. and as we were moving down the road, a group of gunmen just literally jumped out of the trees and bushes on the side of the road. there were probably 15 gunmen. they were wearing ski masks. they were heavily armed. they dragged us out of the car. they had a container truck positioned, waiting by the side of the road. they put us into that container truck. we were with some gunmen, some rebels who were escorting us. they executed one of them on the spot. then they took us to a series of safe houses and interrogation places, and they kept us blindfolded, bound. we weren't physically beaten or tortured. it was a lot of psychological torture, threats of being killed. they made us choose which one of us would be shot first. and when we refused, there were mock shootings.

be careful on the roadways. snow showers and flurries could make it into the boston and new york city area but the i-95 corridor is not expecting any accumulation. enjoy the quiet weather because monday and tuesday forks christmas day, messy weather across portions of the northeast. first out west, this is where we have a storm picking the region right now with strong winds, the lower elevation rain and we're talking feet of snow across the sierra. good news for anyone wanting to do skiing but if you are doing traveling out on the roadways on interstate 5 or parents we're talking about delays possible not just for today but even as we head into tomorrow with yet again another area of low pressure. it will be producing more snow, more rain and more strong winds across the west. big issues along west coast but tomorrow, we'll start to see rain in the southeast spreading into tennessee and ohio valley. by monday, christmas eve the northeast dealing with more rain and some of you will be cold enough for snow, temperatures, 31 in cleveland and 32 in chicago and 27 in the city of minneapolis. he
mayor of kansas city, missouri, but he's also an ordained methodist pastor. pastor cleaver is frequently called upon for words to deliver at my whip meeting on thursday mornings. i have said they are the highlight of our week, in many respects. emanuel cleaver speaks to us about humanity, about caring, about respecting each of our colleagues on either side of the aisle, of respecting and honoring our responsibilities to our fellow citizens. in short, emanuel cleaver on a weekly basis appeals to the best that is within us, to reflect the best that is america. emanuel cleaver will shortly be succeeded as president of the c.b.c. by marcia fudge from ohio. like emanuel cleaver, a leader of conscience, a leader of great ability and a leader who will reach out to all of us as well and continue to lead this organization that we know is the conscience of the congress. as we talk about creating jobs, as we talk about caring for one another, as we talk about makinging life better for all americans, there is no more compelling voice than the congressional black caucus towards that end. and there ha
of southwest flights are cancelled going out of the city. so we will see if i get home tonight. >> some analysts say the delays are minor so far compared to the thousands of flights airlines cancelled during super storm sandy of course that doesn't help passengers dealing with the crowds today on what experts say is the busiest travel day of the christmas season. mike tobin live at o'hare international in chicago. mike, what's the situation there? >> well, you know, harris, everybody looks at o'hare's because if it backs up here, it looks like everybody. does this look like an airport backed up. the reality is as the weather got bad yesterday there was a bunch of warm air over lake michigan and that melted the snow and turned it into a nasty cold rain. they had the flights that were delayed yesterday. they have eaten up the access that was created from that. as we look now at the big board it's not very big. the flights that are out there have those magic words attached "on time." getting the flights out of here. we do see significant delays but they are really on either cotion. you --
of snow across parts of the northeast including here in new york city. coastal areas, new york city has been dealing with mostly areas of rainfall across our area and also the strong winds, gusting over, 30, 40 miles an hour at times. they were very strong in the overnight hours. i don't know if many of you really heard it. parts up state new york and maine we still have the heavy snow coming down. by the time the snow gets out of the northeast, we could see totals over two feet in upstate new york that is incredible amounts of from the storm. not too bad as far as travel goes in laguardia. delays averaging 30 minutes in laguardia. 20 minutes in philadelphia international. we could see some of these worsen. the storm is exiting and should be smoother days if you're heading to the malls to do returns or traveling heading back home after the holiday season. storms are coming home. winter storm warnings in effect not just because of how much snow we're looking at. when you factor in the wind you have whiteoutout conditions and dangerous conditions on roadways. some of these are in effect u
. if you are in new york city, schoolteachers and firemen make $100,000 a year and they are easily in households the approach the limit. it depends and where you live. among high-income people, there is a wide range of what people pay in taxes. if you're a lawyer in washington, i find them to be reasonable people who work long hours. you are probably paying 28%. if you are on wall street and you are well-connected if you have a capacity to have your income defined as investment as opposed to salary even though it is indeed salary income. if you are somebody like jamie dimon or warren buffet, you can get away with 14% tax. the real problem with upper individuals are not the people who pay the taxes we intend for the to pay, but all the people who get away without paying any taxes at all. those tax breaks and write offs are derived by the president and by democrats, but they never seem to get fixed. one reason is republicans do not want them fixed. and the other hand, the democrats get a lot of campaign contributions from wall street. that is a real problem on both sides of the aisle
. cnn, samt lake city. >> we continue right now with brooke baldwin. >> thank you. i'm brooke baldwin. a lot to get to including the standoff over your taxes. here's what we are hearing now. there could be a vote on john boehner's fiscal cliff plan as early as this evening. this of course is president obama's threatening to veto that. we will have more for you from capitol hill and also the man expected to be the next secretary of state is the one questioning the department he could soon take over. that is happening today all in a moment. first, we begin with the blizzard blowing out of the heardland. they are putting a freeze on the rush to get home for the holidays. take a look. this is a very, very big storm. a volatile storm and now a deadly storm. you have rain out front and heavy blowy snow extending right now from missouri to michigan and i want you to look at the pictures with me. this is why you need to think twice about driving in this. should you be in the path of the storm, look at the car. bumper and bumper-to-bumper. this is kansas city not going anywhere right now. we h

as the friday prayers ended outside the main mosque in the second largest city of alex sand dryia. almost on cue, the violence began. and younger members of the opposition began hurling rocks from behind the line of riot police. soon, the scene devended in scrum of rock throwers, tear gas and baton yielding riot police trying to keep the ide separated. opposition leaders said it's preview of the violence the come if mohammed morsi gets his way at the ballot box. tomorrow, the second half of egypt votes on a draft constitution that critics say begins the process of turning the arab world populist country in an islamic state. at the halfway point, those in favor of the move lead the vote by a double digit margin. saturday includes voters in mostly southern egyptian provinces, typically poorer and experts say likely to favor the islamist by wider margin. the latest round of violence began last month when morsi gave himself almost king like powers bridging thousands of people to the street in protest and forcing the army to ring the presidential residents with tanks. the speed at which morsi is push
wear to you it's spectacular. and i actually just love watching major cities get destroyed in a completely fake and ridiculous way, which is what this movie is. >> anyone wearing a hat like this certainly would. but jack reacher, les mis and django. why these for christmas? >> they are a touch violent. here's the thing "jack reacher" is surprisingly funny and tom cruise is once again helping us through is the holidays by hunting down the bad guys. he's a movie star, nobody does it better and by the way, the dude does his own stunts. i couldn't believe it when i was watching it. and i laughed through the whole thing. now, "less miserables" is, of course, account movie adaptation of the very, very popular music musical which i knew nothing about. all the critics aren't completely in love with it, but i thought it was if ied with passionate performances and watching ann hathaway almost starving to death in front of my very eyes helped me kick start my holiday diet. >> come on, now. >> she's magnificent. i actually think we're going to see tons of oscar awards come out of this
highways are very slow. the county and city work crews are out in force salting and plowing. and generally on the main thoroughfa thoroughfare, it is moving slowly. and as the conditions get worse as we see the heavy winds pick up, 35 to 45 miles an hour, start to dry out some of the moisture from the snow, you could end up with heavy icing conditions and the kind of conditions you're talking about where somebody could get stranded and possibly even have life threatened. so everybody in wisconsin, the national guard's playing a part, but we're certainly in partnership with the first responder communities and the state patrol, department of natural resources. >> oh, major general donald dunbar, thank you for talking with us and the best of luck with all of your efforts. if you're in wisconsin, if you go out in your car, put an emergency kit in your car. include a candle. it can save your life. a candle can warm your car and mean the difference between life and death. and i want to turn now to another very big story we've been following, it's the fallout over that scathing report on the atta
in a very densely populated region of new york city, long island, and the southern portions of new york state. and so i think it's a stark reminder, a very real example, a very painful outcome that speaks to the need of investing, investing in our infrastructure. and so as we go forward there's also an opportunity to improve upon what existed at the time of these storms. for instance, in the energy networks, utility networks, we can do state of the art. we have taught other nations how to build those systems. it's time to do nation building at home. and i think the beauty here is that while we invest in transportation and other infrastructure, energy infrastructure and water systems and treatment centers and treatment systems and public schools, what we're doing is rippling into the benefits of efficiency, of public safety, of employment and economic development. that is a positive series of dynamics that then lifts the economy and provides for work. 90% of the jobs, it's projected, that come from this sort of infrastructure investment are speaking to middle income households. jobs that

three weeks after the oklahoma city bombing former president george h bush resigned as agents were called jackbooted thugs. do you think that other lawmakers will take bold steps away from the nra or stay put? >> in a word, no. as a matter of fact i think those who have made steps away from the nra will probably make bold steps back to the nra because they know it is the politicly expedient thing to do. we have a continuation of the massacres that occur periodically in this country and nobody seems to be willing to do anything. even if they come up with another assault weapons ban. the last one was so full of loopholes that it was basically meaningless. >> we will have you guys back a little later in the show. >>> and i want to show you this video from moments ago. this is president obama and the first lady attending the memorial service for the late senator inouye going on right now in hawaii. >>> coming up he is the leading of the gop and the senate. mitch mcconnell seems to be getting a little nervous about the rumblings around ashley judd's political intentions. >>> in 1823 one
